The Highland Animal Relief Team would like to express it's
sincere gratitude to those who make our organization
possible. Without the daily commitment of HART
volunteers, hundreds of animals in HART's catchment area,
will never experience loving care in stable homes.
Volunteering is the most
fundamental act of citizenship and philanthropy in our
society. It is offering personal time, energy and
skills of one's own free will.
It is an extension of being a good neighbour, transforming a
collection of houses into a community, as people become
involved in the improvement of their surroundings, as they
choose to help others. By caring and contributing to
change, volunteers decrease suffering and disparity.
Thank you for volunteering to the Highland Animal Relief

Bags for a Cause
those that have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Erica,
she is a 'Golden Rescue foster-mom-supreme' and has also
recently done fostering for HART.
and her husband are dog lovers who are active in all things
"dog" in the Ottawa area, in addition to all of the awesome
things they have done to help HART. We have seen her work
her foster magic, nursing 3 large breed HART pups from the
ravages of Parvo virus. Dylan, Shiloh and Ryder have now
found wonderful caring adoptive families of their very own.
Their lives were saved by the patient, devoted and demanding
care provided by Erica and her husband Andrew.
year Erica coordinated her first ever Santa Paws Bags for a
Cause gift drive for all of the animals in the care of
Golden Rescue, HART and Newf Friends! Thanks to all of
Erica's amazing work, and with the support of a few key
people including many of her clients, all of the foster and
sanctuary dogs in HARTs care have received special gift bags
under the tree this Christmas!
go Erica! Info about her project can be seen on the Santa
Paws page on her website
